Aquamarijn offers microsieves optimized for emulsification with hydrophobic or hydrophilic coatings for making WATER in OIL or OIL in WATER emulsions respectively. A dead-end module made of polyacetal and a cross-flow module made of PET (polyethylene terphthalate) or PMMA (Poly(methyl methacrylate)) are available. Other designs & materials are available upon request.
Cross-flow emulsification module
- The module has 4 in/outlets that fit with standard coned 10-32 threaded connectors. Droplet formation can be observed via the plastic window with an optical microscope. The module is designed with 75 by 25 mm dimensions, as a standard microscope slide, which allows it to be fitted easily under a microscope.
- Nano Tight Fittings connectors (4 items) and 1/16” OD PTFE tubing (2 meter) OR Luer adapters (10-32 male to Luer Lock female, 4 items) are provided for fluid connections.
- The layout of all the channels can be recognized at the backside of the module.
DP1: Dispersed Phase inlet
DP2: Dispersed Phase outlet
CP1: Continuous Phase inlet as cross-flow inlet
CP2: Continuous Phase outlet as emulsion outlet
2×20: indicating the type of slit chip, other options are 3×30 or 5×50 (see specifications tab)
- It is recommended to use a syringe pump or a microfluidic flow controller to control the flow rate in order to achieve accurate and stable flow for both the dispersed phase and continuous phase, which are of importance for the droplet formation process.
During the emulsification process, DP2 should be closed. After the emulsification process, the module can be reused again by cleaning the entire module with water and/or isopropanol. The backside of the chip can be cleaned with a flow of water or isopropanol by reopening PD2. The front side can be cleaned by simply opening the screw cap. Under all circumstances, the chip surface should be free of touch and particle-free working environment is required.
